Authorities have released the name of the victim of a fatal house fire in Angus Tuesday night.

The victim was identifed as Kevin Haynes, 48, who recently moved to the area from New York state. Haynes died as a result of smoke inhalation and thermal injuries, said Jackie Freeland, Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace.

Freeland ordered an autopsy since the body was too badly burned to identify. Old medical records were used to confirm the victim's identity, Freeland said.

Another man was seriously burned in the trailer fire on Tilton Road in Angus. Ricky Beck, 30, was transported by a PHI Air Medical Service helicopter to a burn unit at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.

The fire was spotted from the highway by a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper patrolling the Interstate, who alerted dispatchers to the blaze.
